Rugged Geek™ occasionally may contract with third-party service providers and suppliers to deliver complete products, services and customer solutions.

These service providers may change or we may contract with additional service providers to better accommodate our customers. Rugged Geek™ will not share personal information with any other third parties without your permission, unless required by law enforcement action, subpoena, or local law.
